Dame Vivienne Westwood has announced a collaboration with classic British brand, Burberry.

The designer has created a limited edition collection of re-imagined styles from Vivienne Westwood’s archive, celebrating British style and heritage.

The Vivienne Westwood collection will be the first collaboration for the brand under new chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci and is planned for launch in December 2018. The collaboration will also support rainforest charity www.coolearth.org.

Tisci said about the collaboration: “Vivienne Westwood was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer myself and when I first started at Burberry, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to approach her to do something. She is a rebel, a punk and unrivalled in her unique representation of British style, which has inspired so many of us. I am so incredibly proud of what we will be creating together.”
